At the Dirt Super Late Model race at Vado in the 2023 Wild West Shootout, Larson had a full-on battle with Jonathan Davenport for the win. And the two competitors blew NASCAR in the water, displaying some serious pace from Larson, and even better defense from Davenport. They both went at it in full force, switching between first and second. But of course, Davenport’s defense turned out to be stronger as he came out as the winner.
